State Repression of Anti-Water Charges Movement as Jobstown 4 Arrested

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Mon, 02/09/2015 - 04:30

Shocking news this morning as we hear that Garda have arrested four anti-water tax protesters this morning in connection with the sit down protest three months ago that kept Joan Burton in her car for a couple of hours. The Jobstown 4 are Paul Murphy, Scott Matherson, Mick Murphy and Kieran Mahon.

The arrests were made just before 7am this morning when teams of Garda arrived at the homes of those targeted. Eirigi have described the arrest of Scott as follows
"‘At around 7am this morning up to a dozen Gardaí in five vehicles arrived at Scott Masterson’s home. Scott was the only adult in the house getting his two young daughters ready for primary school and pre-school. When Scott’s partner returned to the house, having earlier gone to work, there were eight Gardaí in the house along with Scott and the two children. Scott was then arrested and made to stand in handcuffs on a public road for a number of minutes before being transported to Tallaght Garda barracks.’

UE: timeo Danaos et dona ferentes

Anarkismo - Sun, 02/08/2015 - 15:22
L'UE e le sue istituzioni temono forse un effetto da cavallo di Troia all'interno dell'Unione?
Cogliere l'opportunità e l'utilità di una crepa, di uno spazio politico e sociale che potrebbe aprirsi nel monolite del fiscal compact e dell'economia del debito, per rilanciare le difficili lotte sindacali ed ampliare e sostenere le lotte urbane in tutta Europa, al fine di ricostruire la coscienza di classe necessaria ad una rottura democratica.

Palestina-Israele, il 20 febbraio compie 10 anni la lotta di Bil'in che ha ispirato la lotta popolare organizzata e non armata

Anarkismo - Sun, 02/08/2015 - 12:59
Report del 02.02.15
Gli attivisti di Bil'in non furono i primi ad aderire alla lotta popolare non armata contro il muro della separazione, contro l'occupazione e contro l'insediamento dei coloni. Tuttavia, gli attivisti di Bil'in insieme agli Anarchici Contro il Muro furono i primi a dare inizio ad una lotta persistente settimana dopo settimana. Gli attivisti dei villaggi più vicini e quelli più lontani sono venuti a Bil'in per portare il loro sostegno, per trarne ispirazione ed iniziare insieme la lotta anche nei loro villaggi. Ni'lin, Ma'sara, Beit Ummar per alcuni anni... e poi ancora altri villaggi che lottano contro l'invasione dei coloni e contro i posti di blocco degli occupanti come Nabi Saleh and Qaddum.

Uma entrevista com um militante do DAF sobre a solidariedade pelo processo social em Rojava

Anarkismo - Sun, 02/08/2015 - 11:14
Introdução, por Bruno Lima Rocha:

Desde que começou o cerco à Kobanê tenho dedicado várias horas por semana a entender e divulgar o máximo possível sobre essa revolução social iniciada numa combinação de Confederalismo Democrático e a Guerra Civil Síria. Enquanto militante, eu sempre estive envolvido com solidariedade internacional. Enquanto descendente árabe, eu sempre tentei procurar uma força de esquerda que combinasse ação direta e democracia interna. Enquanto acadêmico e professor de Geopolítica estudando a região por mais de 25 anos, Rojava é um sonho que se tornou realidade. Aqui eu começo a primeira de algumas entrevistas com organizações com real experiência nesse processo e na região. Nesta estou conversando com o Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet (DAF, ou Ação Revolucionária Anarquista). Eles têm sido bem ativos nessa ação e entendem em detalhes todo o processo Curdo, tanto em Rojava quanto no interior das fronteiras do Estado Turco.

Stiamo vincendo a Kobanê oggi e vinceremo in tutto il Kurdistan domani!

Anarkismo - Sun, 02/08/2015 - 06:13
Oggi, le bande criminali che gli Stati avevano creato per i loro interessi si stanno ritirando da Kobanê lasciandosi alle spalle le rovine che hanno provocato. Mentre l'eco della vittoria della resistenza sale per le vie di Kobanê, si rafforza la convinzione della libertà al di sopra delle stesse rovine. Come ebbe a dire il compagno Durruti:"Non abbiamo paura delle rovine". Oggi e domani, a Kobanê ed in molti altri posti, sappiamo che una nuova vita nascerà tra quelle stesse rovine.

Rebellion Against Police Violence

Toward Community Defense, Dual Power and Revolution
The murder of Mike Brown at the hands of a police officer in Ferguson, MO evoked rage among the people, both in his neighborhood and across the country. The militant protests that followed were an understandable and appropriate response . . . To deal with the problem of police violence we must rebel against police occupation, build the capacity to defend ourselves as well as our neighbors, and create alternative institutions where people can turn to solve problems within our communities in a fair and healthy way.

Brutality in Maghaberry Prison - the Background

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Sat, 02/07/2015 - 12:30

Earlier today over 50 people protested outside Amnesty International HQ, in Dublin, against the brutal treatment of republican prisoners in Maghaberry prison in Antrim. This has flared up again with, for instance, republican prisoner Martin Kelly having his arm broken and face stomped on by the riot squad only 5 days ago. Here is the background to the struggle of these political prisoners for basic human rights.

---

When the H-blocks closed as a part of the peace process in 2000, republican prisoners were put into Maghaberry prison because it is the only high security prison in the North of Ireland. But anti-Good Friday Agreement republicans were getting imprisoned in Maghaberry from the late 90's. The prison administration straight away treated all political prisoners as “criminal”. The rights that were gained from the prison struggle in the late 70's early 80's were taken away.

Le compagnon Vicente, tout comme d'autres militant-e-s d'autres organisations, collectifs et idéologies, n'est pas le premier et ne sera pas le dernier jeune noir et anarchiste à être condamné dans ce Brésil raciste.

C'est vers elles et eux que notre solidarité est dirigée et c'est ensemble avec chaque travailleur/euse que nous serrerons nos poings. Nous ne nous ferons pas intimider et dans chaque manifestation de rue, piquet, grève, occupation nous serons épaule contre épaule avec toutes celles et tous ceux qui luttent !

End The Abuses in Maghaberry – Solidarity with Political Prisoners

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Fri, 02/06/2015 - 05:30

The violence that erupted within the confines of Maghaberry Prison this week was the accumulation of ongoing tensions directed at political prisoners by Prison Authorities who are continuing to implement a punishing regime within the confines of Roe House, which houses around fifty Republican Political Prisoners. That's why we are saying End The Abuses in Maghaberry – Solidarity with Political Prisoners!

Since the end of January the Republican wing was put on lock down, 23 hour lock up, controlled movement and regular brutal forced strip searching despite an agreement brokered in the summer of 2010 to address these issues.

At the height of the violence, white-line pickets and protests occurred in both Belfast and Derry, as well as outside Maghaberry Gaol itself in an effort to highlight the abuse of human rights within Roe House. Reports coming directly from Maghaberry have been reminiscent of the horrors inflicted on Political prisoners in the H Blocks and Crumlin Road Gaol during the 1970’s and 1980’s. Prisoner representatives and their families have stated that several prisoners within Maghaberry’s Roe House have been attacked and beaten with one prisoner requiring hospital treatment after sustaining a broken arm. Legal challenges have also taken place as solicitors for those prisoners assaulted have been denied access to their clients who were initially refused immediate medical treatment as a result.
